1. The first wonderful thing is that I got my annual Valentine's quilt block in the mail from my mom! They're different every year, and this is the tenth one. I'm about ready to start piecing them together I think. Lately Mom has been exploring different ways of doing transfers to fabric, so I think that's why she did that picture of my sister and me in the middle. I'm the round-faced one on the right, sometime in the mid-80s. You can't tell, but I'm wearing a pumpkin Halloween costume and my sister is wearing a Snow White costume (that's a really terrible fuzzy wig she has on). Love you mom!!!
2. I love my pups! Unfortunately this weekend they both had to have baths which they did not like at all. Blue especially really really hates it, but we all survived. They'd needed them for a while, but the final straw was when Blue peed all over Bentley's head on the walk (way worse than usual). Usually it's Bentley's fault- he pushes in there before Blue is done. But this time it was Blue all the way, he couldn't bother waiting until Bentley moved. Anyway, they were both really wonderfully clean for a couple of days and then it rained just enough to make mud in the backyard and now they're dirty again.
3. My mom and I are shopping around a Mother-Daughter art quilt show called Life in the Mountain West. We're looking for museums/galleries to hang it, which is pretty stressful and requires lots of persistence, but I'm excited about it and I was thrilled that the promotional postcards I arrived for it arrived the other day. We're going to have them to pass out at the annual SAQA conference in Toronto next week among other things. The picture is out of focus, but the postcard is nice and crisp and the colors are great. I always order stuff like this from Vistaprint and I've never been disappointed.
